Did You Know?

Useful film about the world around us today. Check back in a couple of years and compare how this has changed.

Nice find. Found the bit about the exponentially expanding amount of information we generate as a species the most interesting. I have to wonder if there's a point where the human brain will begin to revolt en masse from the info overload. It was, after all, designed primarily to pick fruit and run away from tigers.

I know what you mean. I am personally feeling tired with the always on culture and the amount that we have to filter. If you read Guy Claxton's Hare Brain, Tortoise Mind there are some interesting observations about the speed in development of the world around us in relation to relatively slow evolution of the human brain. Interesting stuff.
